The local event calendars are filling up. A new event we’ll be attending is The Street Fight Summit West, which is June 5 at Bently Reserve in San Francisco, a classy location.
Street Fight head Laura Rich tells us the event will be more tech-oriented than the company’s two-day East Coast event, which takes place in late October, and is inevitably more media oriented. Both events ultimately aim to reflect the latest in hyperlocal developments.
Among the 30 speakers set to present are a number of our friends, including Topix CEO Chris Tolles, AOL Local senior VP Mark Josephson, Where CEO Walt Doyle, Closely CEO Perry Evans, local pioneer Rick Blair, local and tech news pioneer Jon Weber, and Yelp business development leader Mike Ghaffry. There are also many companies that we are looking forward to learning about, and there’s a merger and acquisition panel.
